A word from the Principal

At Scoil na nÓg, students in fifth and sixth classes, primarily from an English-speaking background, are immersed in Irish. The immersion model is highly effective at Scoil na nÓg, with a system in place to help children acquire Irish naturally through daily experiences in a fully Irish-speaking environment.

All school subjects are taught through Irish, except for English.
